Scope and Content Note

These papers contain correspondence, deeds, and land warrants belonging to Robert Toland (of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), concerning the purchase of land in Arkansas and payment of taxes on it. Correspondents include William E. Woodruff, who founded the Arkansas Gazette.

These papers were originally numbered H-35 and is part of the J. N. Heiskell Historical Collection, courtesy of the Arkansas Gazette Foundation.


Biographical Note

Robert Toland lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and purchased many military bounty land patents for Arkansas Territory between 1820 and 1822. William E. Woodruff served as his agent in Arkansas, paying his taxes and administering the property from roughly 1825 until at least 1842. It is unlikely Toland ever traveled to Arkansas.
